Snow geese in great numbers on this date in 2018. Usually they arrive in November, many thousands, sometimes as many as 100,000, and stay in the quarries until February but this year I haven’t seen any yet. I’m guessing it’s because we’ve had warm snowless weather.
Wait a couple of seconds and they come into focus. Some snow geese feeding in a field. They come out of the quarries in groups, and this would only be one of several or even many groups. It’s amazing!
Two more from up on the hill looking at the ridge as it’s red with sunrise light, with geese flying in front of it, December 6th 2015. I wonder what pictures I could have gotten with the phone and camera I have now. At the time I just had a really small Canon point and shoot.
Tomorrow I’ll post some of these again. I’ve never seen another day like the 6th of December 2016.
6th of December, 2015, the day of frozen fog. The lake was socked in with fog so I went to the top of a hill to watch the first light of dawn, turned red by the fog, lighting up the ridge. The original caption: “A skein of geese in the air and wild turkeys on the hill, frost, fog, and the red of first light on the ridge.”
